SUPER ARCHITECTS  Serving Architectures' CounterCulture

Monday (like any other day)... is when the creative juices "should" keep flowing #cantstopwontstop // #SuperArchitects @david_mcleod

-
In modern #architecture, #construction #processes are based on top down planning, yet in nature but also in vernacular architecture, the shape of shelters/nests is the result of evolutionary material processes which takes place without any global coordination or plan.
-

This project presents a framework for exploring how #selforganizing structures can be achieved in a bottom up fashion by implementing a swarm of simple robots(bristle bots). The robots are used as a #hardware platform and operate in a #modular 2D arena filled with differently shaped passive building blocks.
-
The robots push around blocks and their #behaviour can be programmed mechanically by changing the geometry of their body. Through physical experimentation and video analysis the relationships between the properties of the emergent patterns (size, temporal stability) and the geometry of the robot/parts are studied.
This work couples a set of #agent based design tools with a robust robotic #system and a set of analysis #tools for generating and actualising emergent 2D structures.

A thing-in-itself //@cbuyukberber

It wasn't long ago when #Typhoon #Haiyan hit #Tacloban City. 3.9 million survivors were left without #electricity. With Pepsi having one of its largest bottling plants in the city, people reinvented the night light by adding a solar panel, a battery, and an #LED to a single #bottle so it could store 10 hours of daylight. Residents of Tacloban City were taught to create and maintain the #lights.
